Comforting Hands

The Bright Side Family is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide affordable housing, affordable assisted living, and support services that respond to the changing needs and preferences of older adults in ways that offer choice, promote dignity, ensure safety, and advance economic security. 


Everything we do is guided by our belief that having a safe and comfortable home environment is a fundamental right, that income should not dictate access to supportive care, health care, or social services, and that community is created by honoring one another’s individuality, dignity, privacy, and autonomy.

Bright Side Manor

The Brookdale

Our flagship service: A high-quality, 65-bed assisted living facility in Teaneck, New Jersey. It is Bergen County's only truly affordable, non-sectarian option for residential assisted living.

A subsidized senior apartment building built with aging in mind, this 61-unit facility is located in a quiet Teaneck neighborhood, built with aging-in-place in mind. 

Portable Assisted Living Services (PALS)

An alternative to moving into an assisted living facility or retirement home, Portable Assisted Living Services (PALS) is customized, in-home, affordable care for residents of Westwood House, Belmont Gardens, or Golden Tower.

Senior Checks

A program that offers personal financial consultation, including paying bills, budgeting, avoiding scams, connecting to social services, organizing mail, and more.

Age-Friendly Teaneck

Working to make the community more livable for people of all ages, while also increasing awareness of the needs of the Township’s rapidly growing older population.
